Due to a global shortage in the 2021 maple syrup crop, worldwide syrup prices have increased 25-30%. Because of this, we have been forced to temporarily raise our prices. We have tried to keep price increases to a minimum (usually less than 10%) and hope this situation is only temporary. Thank you for your understanding!

Getting Ready

Although there have been days when the weather felt like it was time to make syrup, the long-range forecast doesn't really show a stretch of good sugaring weather yet, so we're forced to wait.  While we wait it's been a perfect chance to work on some projects to enhance this year's season.  One of our big projects is working on a vacuum pump to put up at the new trees we're tapping (an area we call the "snowmobile trail" because...wait for it...it's a snowmobile trail that runs through the middle of our woods).  This vacuum pump is a fairly old Surge Alamo vacuum pump that was originally designed for a dairy milking system.  We've retrofitted it with a gas engine (since there's no electric service near the woods) and made a few other adjustments to get it ready for a new life as a maple sap vacuum pump.  We're excited to see what this will do to increase our production!
